3:06 pm
>> republicans have within staunch in insisting they should abandoned the whole thing but we hear the president will tackle this wednesday and may talk about what is next? >> that's right. he's going to talk about the new content, a new bill. not full blown but a proposal the white house says that replaces what the white house put up on the website a week ago today. this is a fluid situation, and again, we'll hear from the president wednesday. it's not an oval office address with formal trappings but the president's way of explaining what he's for and willing to sign and try to fine republicans to sign on. >> major, thanks a lot. >> etch -- every day, every way, fox news is on the job hunt. with benefits running out for 1.2 million americans yesterday, a top senate republican expects to extended benefits.

3:15 pm
buildings were going to come down. >> there are cities more badly damaged but it's not as if santiago was spared. >> absolutely. my father, for example, was a distance from santiago and assumed it wasn't bad but that was not the case. i was out and about today and some of the damage here is extensive. >> as a matter of fact we're showing your pictures. some big buildings suffered a lot of damage. one of those pictures, i used to live in that room about three years ago. the balcony is gone now. >> i saw that a few pictures ago. i know of which you speak. what's your sense of how well the rescue efforts are going? >> i think it's starting to pick up speed. the problem here is access. in the first couple days, some
3:16 pm
limited number of authorities went down on helicopters because it was the only way to get to the hardest hit areas near the epicenter and you know, just -- it's been -- people could get in by boat or helicopters but the airports are closed. roads are closed and bridges are out along the main highway going south but it's start to open up. airport has started receiving flights and there are some busses now heading down south. what normally takes about five hours is now taking 18 hours right now. >> conconcepcion is a mess. we just got word from the u.s. state department chile requested water, emergency field hospital and help with communications and the united states will spend that right away. i guess the needs are many and widespread. >> absolutely. people i talked to today,
3:17 pm
everyone said yeah, bring it on. any help we can get. we need it at this point. i think there's a little bit of a delayed reaction -- not just by the authorities but by people in general. at least in santiago to appreciate how devastating this was but at this point it's clear all of a sudden a major disaster. >> indeed it is. benjamin whitt, a free lance reporter and there at the time. this show destruction across the nation. sad days for chile as the cleanup and rescue continues. all the best to you and yours. the head of the united nations nuclear watchdog agency can't firm whether all of iran's nuclear operations are peaceful. this comes after iran announced

he's serving a decade prison sentence for the role in enron
3:22 pm
but jeffrey skilling is asking the supreme court to throw out his conviction. he's appealing his 2006 trial in houston, claiming it was unfair because it took place in enron's hometown and it cost the community jobs and money. the u.s. supreme court is also expected tomorrow to hear a challenge to the chicago ban on handguns. does the second amendment to the constitution, its right to keep and bare arms extend to the local government. it's considered by many to the one of the strictest in the nation but because d.c. is a federal district the ruling does not apply to states. the lead plaintiff in this case is 76-year-old otis mcdonald. he calls himself a democrat and a lifelong hunter, spent most of his life in chicago's morgan
3:23 pm
park neighborhood. his home has been robbed a handful of times and he's been threatened with a gun while sitting in his car. with us, judge napolitano. this is a evident to put a different face on the, a democratic, a african-american man. >> against the city of chicago which has the type of near total handgun band that the district of columbia had. the supreme court opinion that's two years old is called heller. the plaintiff was a cop who used the gun at work but wasn't allowed to have it in his house. the supreme court in ruling in favor of this cop and invalidating the d.c. ban said the second amendment is an extension of your right to self-defense and you can defend yours self when the police can't come using whatever means are available. at one point it was speers, another point it was swords now
3:24 pm
guns. the court referred to it as a fundamental right. that means it comes from our personhood like the right to speech and travel and worship or not to worship. but the people in chicago says it doesn't apply to us. the what value would the second amount be if cities and towns and states could take away our right to bare arms and only the federal government couldn't. >> they argue we could limit the right to keep and bear arms. state the new york city transit system. you would be hard-pressed to find new yorkers who want more gun rights on the subway systems. cities and states say there are ex ten waiting circumstances. >> couple of arguments. the same court, the very same personnel that declared this a fundamental liberty with the exception of justice sotomayor
3:25 pm
for justice souder, whose vows are the same, will hear this tomorrow. i think they'll clarify their opinion it applies to all governments. i think they will do that because the -- >> what -- fundamental is a code word to lawyers meaning it's a natural right and no government can interfere, subject to reasonable demands of society. a total ban would be out of the question. >> how would that effect local gun laws in san francisco and chicago. >> all the local gun laws where there's a bias against giving people the right to own guns, to have a bias in favor. if i want a gun in new york city i have to demonstrate why i'm entitled. once the supreme court rules, it would be reversed and if i want a gun, the city would have to demonstrate why i'm not entitled
3:26 pm
which switches the burden from me to the city to prove why i shouldn't have one. >> who sets up what case? this case is one with a different face and they're trying to say this is everybody in america. >> one of the beauties of the supreme court is you get to pick the cases you hear and they chose to hear this case. the lower courts ruled in favor of the city of chicago after the heller, the d.c. decision came down. they read it the same way the city of chicago does to mean it doesn't apply to cities and states. the supreme court said we'll clarify it. >> i'm guessing it will be the familiar 5-4 vote. >> probably. >> who do you want will write the descent. >> maybe just sis. >> shall -- justice sotomayor. >> that was what i was thinking.
3:27 pm
that would be president obama's involvement in the process against president bush. >> yes, justice scalia, justice stevens, president ford's appointee. he'll be with the descenters as well. >> away we go. >> do guns keep us safe in i think they do. >> yes, well, there are lots of arguments. you don't want everyone in the subway having one. >> we won't go there. >> thank you. >> twice in two months, two major e struck the western hemisphere. the question is how will the rescue efforts in chile differ from the operations in haiti and how bad is the damage in the two countries? a expert on civil engineering weighs in and "studio b" continues in 2 1/2 minutes.

professor of the civil, architectural and environmental engineering at the university of texas is with us. thank you, ma'am. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> two completely different worlds, aren't they. >> absolutely. when you look how intensely devastated haiti was on a massive scale, it's less damage on that scale in chile but parts of chile will be as bad. >> the town of con concepcion is just off there and we read the island -- actually a seaside resort of pellahuge is washed away. the challenges are many in some levels. >> absolutely. we know that coastal areas can be greatly devastated by earthquakes. both because the soils are not as good and are prone to various damage, as well as the tsunami, as you indicated. >> what are they going to need from us and the rest of those who want to help?
3:32 pm
>> i think you've seen it already from what has been asked for. critical facilities, hospital, are important to treat those who have been injured. then also, critical infrastructure to get around such as bridges. you saw a lot of bridges and overpasses collapsed in the earthquake. reminiscent to the 1994 north rigid earthquake or the one in california. they need to rebuild that infrastructure as quickly as possible so people can get around. >> shepard: the iconic images, the ones that stick in your mind from those two are collapsed bridges. and bridges that still have busses on them. we're seeing that in chile and you wonder how long it will before the transportation network is in order. >> those are critical lifelines and we're always concerned with those as earthquake engineers because they're the bottlenecks to getting rescue and response efforts in. and so in the u.s., we have been

3:44 pm
>> simple up or down vote. familiar village from the last administration. nancy pelosi weighed in yesterday, urging fellow democrats to support the reform plans. some republicans are still say she don't think she can get it done. >> they don't have the votes from our best count. i wouldn't count her out. they were down 24 on cap and trade the night before and they passed it by 8. the speaker is very good at making deals behind closed doors but right now they don't have the votes. >> she seems to think they to and we hear joe biden could play into the decision. with us, jordan lieberman. the vice president has a big role when things are close. >> sure does, a tie breaker. >> they need 50 and the vice president would be the tiebreaker. >> that's right. in this case, that's a recipe for near certain destruction of the democratic majority in the
3:45 pm
senate and house. >> shepard: that's your belief? >> if they do this, reconciliation would pass but you can expect a republican take over. >> that's because of the messages after? >> the message is of course that americans, like to slow and deliberate government process and this is only used a few times, perhaps 20 times in the last 20 years. this is by far and above the most expensive reconciliation potentially passed in congress. it's a dangerous, uncharted territory. >> we looked at when and how it was used before to be fair and of course we found george bush used it for the budgeted. >> that's right but never at the level of a trillion dollars overhaul of -- >> shepard: no. >> this is -- i think the american people are pretty clear they do not want a simple majority to pass this.
3:46 pm
i think they want a republican input on what comes out. >> shepard: that's a fact. the -- all polling suggests the american people don't want this done that way. what do you make of that fact, stacked up against the fact that in almost every way polled, if you talk about a public option, people want it. >> well, i think that's again -- you're playing semantics with the word. >> shepard: that is what it is. >> you can call it whatever you want. the fact is americans like having split and divided government and deliberate process but the fact is of course healthcare is broken. if we don't fix it we'll all be bankrupt. it's a tough place for barack obama. >> that's a fact. it's often left out of the debate. but you talk about ways to get this through. if in fact they did that, would a filibuster happen and is it your sense that republicans would old school style get up and read the bible or read constitution or something?
3:47 pm
>> it would be great political theater. but with reconciliation, it -- it's the kind of thing that can happen in the middle of the night. >> that's how it happened with bush's budget. >> right. it's a dangerous place for moderate democrats. you will see democrats who voted for the first healthcare plan oppose this on the ground they need to be reelectricked. >> barack obama said i would prefer to be a successful one-term president than less than successful two-term president. you wonder if everyone in the house and senate were consulted. >> i believe they would prefer to be reelected. i believe he would be happy losing if he gets what he wants. >> so he means no reconciliation? >> it banks -- brinks man ship
3:48 pm
between the house and president. there's a lot of moderate democrats who will be nervous. >> demand an up and down vote, that's the language used in the last administration. everybody that thinks these ideas are new haven't been paying attention. >> that phrasing works among a lot of people but you could say railroad willing to vital senate tradition and force something through in a way not normally the process. it's a tough way to -- it's a tough way to do this. >> shepard: there are a lot of places if you go out and read today on the nonpartisan and partisan left and right website from smart folks. a lot of them suggest this rule at this point in history seems to be making washington ungovernable. is that from a bias or is there truth? >> if you look at how
3:49 pm
reconciliation has been used, it's become more and more a crutch for when we can't agree on big ticket issues. it used to be for little things but it's become the nuclear option. that was never the intent of reconciliation. >> didn't look like it. it looked like it was to make sure power was restained and the senate would say not too fast when our balance of power is -- well, unbalanced. jordan lieberman. this ought to be an interesting week. thank you. >> we'll get you more on the missing honor student, chelsea king. there are reports of dna evidence a possible suspect in custody. a member of her family will join us live next. ring ring ring ring
